Nothing says Halloween like a good smokey eye. Try a pallet with different hues to play with the traditional grey smokey look. Urban Decay do a pallet called Smoked, which is perfect for this.
Crushed velvet nails
Plush, matte nail varnishes are a great way to add a gothic touch to your everyday look for Halloween. Try the new Rimmel Velvet Matte range which dries matte in seconds, no top coat required. We love the Purple Opulence shade for gothic glamour.
When it comes to Halloween lip colour – go bold or go home. We love Nars’ range of velvet lip liners as they offer fantastic colour with a rich matte finish. Try the Train Bleu shade – it’s a deep berry colour that will make quite the statement.
For a Vampire-like flush, try Topshop’s cheek jelly in Museum. Dip your finger in the jelly-like formula and apply to your cheekbones for a sheer, subtle colour.
If you want to be festive without wearing a costume – why not experiment with some spooky eyelashes instead? Eyelure have two limited-edition false lash kits out for Halloween – ‘Spooky’ and ‘Batwing’. Batwing is the bolder of the two, while Spooky offers a more delicate take on the trend.
